that is, that would end up being the largest tax increase in the mystery of america on the american people -- if you're not going to do it through legislation, we'll do it through our regulations through the environmental protection agency. and so there was an endangerment finding. the administrator of the e.p.a. had the endangerment finding, and it was based on the ipcc flawed science. nonetheless, it was there. and so they started on a route to regulate co2 through regulations. let's stop and think about what that would be. the cost that we have determined over a period of ten years now to take over the regulation and have -- tph-fbgs a type of cap-and-trade -- in fact a type of cap-and-trade through regulation would be about $300 billion to $400 billion a year. i estimated what that would cost an average family in oklahoma. it was about $3,000 for each family that pays, that actually files a tax return. you have to ask the question: what you get if you pass this. first of all, i think most of the people right now are concerned with the price of gasoline at the pump. it's going up again.

stations, smalltown and rural america where it's more expensive to broadcast and where they rely on this funding to be able to produce the programs. it would not just hammer n.p.r., but it would deny them the ability to use the funds for that subversive show, "prairie home companion," for "this american life," for "the car guys." it would prohibit them from producing locally produced content from other public broadcasting stations. this is lunacy. it unravels is carefully crafted partnership which has delivered year after year. it's why the american public strongly supports this investment, this one half cent per day. in fact, 78% of the american public want it maintained or increased. and most interestingly, that same bipartisan poll showed that 2/3 of american republicans support keeping the funding or increasing it. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentlelady from new york reserves. the gentleman from florida is recognized. mr. nugent: i just reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from florida reserves. the gentlela

too contradictory characterizations of what america's interest is in libya. what did you hear from that exchange between secretaries gates and clinton? >> well, gates is clearly a realist. he's always been. this is not new. that's how he's been able to serve two presidents well, both bush and obama. but the notion of what is vital interest is something that one can debate. if you had asked me -- and i come out of a realist background myself. if you had asked me six months ago, do we have an interest to intervene in libya, i would have said, probably not, i would have to scratch my head to see whether we did or not. but things have changed dramatically over the past few weeks. libya is not just about libya. we see all these revolutions are connected. we see that public empowerment in the region is connected. we see that the message that is sent in libya is heard in damascus and in yemen. there is a very important american interest in the revolutions and particularly in seeing the peaceful revolutions that are seeking primarily freedom and dignity succeed because that is the best ant

the white people in america all shook up. they cannot stand it because he was a black man. george bush -- host: you think this is about race? caller: part of it is, peter. i can understand why white people cannot see the racist element of it. if he was a black bush, you could see it. host: omaha, nebraska, on the republican line. just then, how you think the president has handled the libyan conflict so far -- justin? caller: i do not approve of the present -- he has shown that he is loyal to one group of people, the bankers. we have no business in libya. if this was such an issue, why did we allow this for 40 years or some of their other nations closer. at least it is a coalition. i am not interested in anything the united nations says -- host: what did you think of the iraq war during the bush administration? caller: i am a veteran of the iraq war. i was there in 2004 when it was still pretty fuzzy -- when there was no government and nothing going on. i was a bit younger than. that was almost 10 years ago. and it took me about two weeks of being there to figure out that this was a sca

about it. think about the history of innovation. what sets america apart is so many of our great inventions start out in small garages and labs with driven, inspired people who have great ideas, developed them and then they take off. i mention companies that have started this way yesterday. hewlett packard, apple, google, and there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of others. they started from humble beginnings, and they grew spectacularly, creating jobs for millions of americans and lifting up our economy and standard of living. i know an inventor who invented sky vodka, and the vodka he drank disturbed his stomach, so he figured out biologically and chemically what it was, and he invented a vodka called sky vodka. small inventor. that company was subsequently sold, i think for a great deal of money, but it started with one man who had a stomachache from drinking vodka. now, this may be just one type of example, but apple is certainly another type of example. a garage many years ago in california, and out of that emerged this giant company. so these companies start from humble

inflation, right here in america, you can feel it, you can see it, that may well result in a slowing of the economy, but it's a direct result of what's been happening in the middle east. bill: just underline the point, when you're trying to get a recovery and solidify it, this is not what you want. stu, thank you. arthel: in spite of that news the top money man in the country, federal reserve chairman ben bernanke, is saying that rising gas prices are not yet posing a threat to the u.s.: >> the increases that we've seen so far will obviously be a problem for a lot of people. -- while obviously a problem for some people do not yet pose a risk to the recovery or the maintenance of overall stable inflation. arthel: and we are minutes from the opening bell on wall street. stocks are heading for a gain today, and futures are up. bill: also, new amateur videotape into "america's newsroom" out of libya's capitol city of tripoli, protestors celebrate whag they thought was gadhafi's flight from the city. there were reports that hundreds of protestors set cars and buildings on fire in late feb

protest movement america was supporting. in libya now, there's some of that same awkwardness. justin elliott had a piece at salon.com that was helpful and interesting, noting that the george w. bush administration's embrace of gadhafi and their military brought about something a year ago that brought senior libyan officers to the headquarters of the u.s. pentagon command center leading the fight against that exact same libyan military. think about that a second. pentagon division now fighting them in a war. and it is looking more and more like a war. the u.n. security council vote that authorized what's happening, that vote was to protect civilians by enforcing a no-fly zone over the country, right? but it authorized member states taking, quote, all necessary measures to protect civilians there. we are now into that all necessary measures part. reports from libya saying there is no one other than the coalition flying over libya. only coalition aircraft are in the skies. but what they are doing is attacking gadhafi's military on the ground, attacking tanks and missile launchers, attac
